Batting 3rd his numbers are actually much worse anyways.
Since he gets himself in scoring position so often, it would be interesting to see how often he is driven in percentage-wise. How often is he "left on the field".
I would be really interested to hear how you think Dunn's production can be easily replaced. Also, what F.A. pitchers are going to be worth bloated contracts this offseason?
If there are easy answers to those questions than I must be looking at all the wrong available info.
Guys who hit well only when there are RISP are pissing away the vast majority of their at-bats. They also aren't creating RISP opportunities for their teammates.
I could give a **** less if Dunn batted .000 with no one on base if he batted .500 with people on base.
